Kwan Kung Pavilion (Chinese: 關公忠義亭; Kwan Kung Chung Yi Ting) is a temple on Cheung Chau island in Hong Kong. It was built in 1973,[1] and is dedicated to the god of war and wealth Kwan Tai (also transliterated as Guan Yu or Kwan Kung). His sword, The Kwan Dou, is also displayed in the Kwan Kung Pavilion.

The temple contains an eight-feet-tall Kwan Tai statue crafted from a whole piece of camphor wood.[1] There is an incense burner with two dragons in front of the pavilion.[2]
